Opeth - To Enter The Studio In January


That's right! Opeth will start the recording of their 10th album on the 31st of January 2011. The band has picked the legendary Atlantis Studios (ex Metronome studios) in Stockholm and will once again work with Jens Bogren engineering. Mixing duties will be handled by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree).

A possible release worldwide is expected in Autumn of 2011 through Roadrunner Records. The new material has been described by the band as being "good".

I was listening to Watershed yesterday and wondering when news of a new one would appear.

Well, it would be quite weird if they said something like, "Well, so far the new material really sucks. We hope the next several tracks will sound better. If not, you will just have to put up with a crappy record."

of course it's "good."

Their discography started going "Meh" since Winston started to do some stuff with the band.

First you mean WILSON...
Second their discography went "Meh"...???? What the fuck are you talking about? Blackwater Park, Damnation/Deliverance, Ghost Reveries are their best albums. Everyone I know who likes Opeth have one of these among their favorites. Watershed was good too but a little difficult to get into, but after a while it started to grow on me.
I also like the Pre-Wilson era, if I can put it that way, but they were searching their style for the first three albums and found it on Still Life which is similar in sound to Blackwater Park...Which adds to my incomprehension on your comment. But maybe it's just me...Like we say in french: "Tous les goûts sont dans la nature!" (All tastes are natural).

I said STARTED, I should write better and you shouldread better as well.

Blackwater Park, Damnation and Deliverance are still very good albums but for me it's going slowly (I repeat just in case you didn't catch up: SLOWLY) going downhill. I never understood the OVERHYPE (because it's nothing short of an overhype) that Blackwater Park has, specially since albums like Still Life and Morningrise are equally good to say the least.

Deliverance was good the first years I heard it, now it just seems old and not really something that fresh... and Ghost reveries... well, the first time I heard it seemed like it was a different band with mikael åkerfeldt doing the vocals. The thing got worse with Watershed when they went just way to progressive... It seems that with Wilson they took more progressive and left the metal part behind. There is no song in the last 2 cds that has the same strenght than songs like Blackwater Park, Serenity Painted Death or Demon of The Fall.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT, I still believe that the real problem for me isn't Wilson (he's one of the reasons but not the main one)... it's the FUCKING keyboardist.... Mikael, if you ever read this: KICK THE SHIT OUT OF THAT GUY....


PS: Also.... In my humble opinion.... They knew exactly what they were doing since their debut, I don't think they were searching a sound at all.

Hopefully it will be better than Watershed... That really sucked.

Well, "good" doesn't seem to be enough, especially if it's as "good" as Watershed was...

I tkink they don't want to oversell the album yet...not like some bands who say "it's our best album to date...strongest album so far" and then it comes out and as BAMM!! crappy album right in the kisser

Can't wait for the new album:)

Very interested to see if they keep with the direction of watershed, revert back to older styles or go compleely left field on us again. Personally I hope for the latter.

I should have read better.... Yeah right... I read exactly what you wrote and there was only one sentence. Now you wrote three paragraphs and a P.S. to explain that sentence. Overhype on Blackwater Park??? Man that album to me, and a lot of people I know is just awesome. It's funny how people will say something is overrated when they PERSONALLY don't like it or the contrary (Say something is underrated when they like it and a majority of people hate it). You have the right to like the old Opeth more than their latest stuff but then again I don't see what's wrong with their keyboardist. And I don't think Mikael is going to 'kick the shit out of him' anytime soon just cause you wrote that questionable sentence... Man I think you should go to bed, you seem tired to write such bullshit.
